Irssi is a terminal based IRC client for UNIX systems. It also supports SILC, XMPP and ICB protocols via plugins.

Even the dpkg bot in #debian agrees irssi rocks:
<dpkg> i guess irssi is the best <IRC> client ever. "aptitude install irssi" and read . See also

S*it for opensource

True story from IRC about how to make sh*t from opensource. It is just my way of thinking.
Opensource should be a god's light. You may judge me for saying or doing this in a rough way... but i stand my ground for opensource. and this is just my way of doing things. i will never use a help of dark lords of proprietary software.

Real nicks(and a project name/version too) are replaced with "some_other_developer" and "Project_Lead_Developer". I don't really...
